Brenton Blue butterfly presentation by Dr Dave Edge
November 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
One of the possible casualties of the June 2017 fire that raged down the Brenton Peninsula was our very own tiny icon for species conservation, the famous Brenton Blue butterfly. Since the encouraging sighting of a brave survivor (a female) in November 2017 it has not been seen again and its ultimate survival is still in doubt. Dr Dave Edge, who received his doctorate for his ground-breaking research into this fascinating butterfly, will be able to tell us of the results of the latest research, and the fascinating way in which the ecosystem in which the butterfly exists is being re-established through the amazing natural process of succession.
